Program Description

The Small Unmanned Aircraft (Drone) Remote Pilot Certificate Program is specifically designed to provide both basic airman knowledge, hands-on flying skill, and preparation to apply for and pass the FAA small drone remote pilot certification (Part 107 test). Students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in knowledge and operations of a small-unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) through both written and flying skill tests.

Who should attend
The program is ideal for individuals that will be taking on the responsibility for commercial operation of small drones. This may be on behalf of their company or for those individuals interested in starting up their own sUAS related business. There are a variety of commercial uses for small drones, including:

• Delivery - light packages, mail, food
• News reporting - TV channels
• Real estate’s advertisement
• Aerial inspection - roofs, bridges, electrical power lines
• Surveillance & security
• Construction survey
• Movies and media
• Search & rescue, disaster relief
• 3D mapping
• Agriculture

A Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) Certificate of Achievement will be issued to the participants who complete the course and pass the FAA administered exam.
